About the course
This course is an entry-level accounting qualification, ideal for anyone who is seeking an introduction to basic accounting principles and skills.
Units studied are:
- Introduction to Book-keeping
- Principles of Book-Keeping Controls
- Principles of Costing
- The Business Environment
There are no formal entry requirements for this course. Previous knowledge of accounting or a Level 1 Bookkeeping qualification would be advantageous but not essential.
Students who do not hold GCSE English and Maths at grade C/4 or Functional Skills Level 2 qualifications will be invited to sit an assessment to ensure that they have suitable skills for this qualification.
Basic IT skills are also required.
Students must become AAT Student Members before the course starts (fees apply).
This course is assessed through computer-based exams and a synoptic assessment, which draws on and assesses knowledge and understanding from across the qualification. Assessments take place at the College on Tuesday evenings.
We have partnered with Mindful Education to deliver this course through our flexible Online and On Campus model which combines online learning with face-to-face lessons in the classroom. Learners will study award-winning video lessons on demand from home and will also attend college lessons on a fortnightly basis. It is recommended that you have access to a PC, laptop or other suitable device.
Learners also benefit from access to the college library during our evening opening times, including computers, study stations, print-based and electronic learning materials, printers and scanners.
You can progress on to the AAT Level 3 Advanced Diploma in Accounting
